I urge the City Council to stop all this overtime for city employees ("Overtime budget buster," June 30). It reflects badly on the City Council's leadership and is poor management and oversight in these difficult economic times. These people are essentially raising our taxes and should be stopped immediately. The City Council should say no to all overtime except in emergencies like the snow storm. We shouldn't have to pay more taxes to keep over 800 of the same people for the last three years earning more than 30 percent of their salaries in overtime.

The No. 1 Bryn Mawr field hockey team had a reality check Saturday at the South River Invitational, while No. 4 Glenelg and No. 5 South River fought it out for the title. South River won the tournament, 3-2, in overtime on a blast by senior captain Courtney Thompson. "It was definitely exciting," Thompson said. "We decided to move me down further for the hit in overtime because the field was so rough further out. When Stacey [Mackintosh] got me the ball, I realized I had the perfect angle … and I just hit it as hard as I could.

After escaping with a 9-8 overtime decision over Centennial Conference rival Ursinus on Wednesday night, No. 6 Washington College went through equal amounts of relief and confidence. “From a coaching standpoint, a huge sigh of relief,” coach Jeff Shirk said on Thursday afternoon. “I think from the players' standpoint, there was an excitement. We definitely dodged a bullet against a very good Ursinus team that played very well last night. But at the end of the day, it was a little more excitement than relief because we found ourselves in a dogfight right from the beginning and found a way to win at the end when it looked like we weren't going to. So I think it was a great experience that will help build the program and the team.” The Shoremen improved to 10-1 overall and 5-0 in the conference, further solidifying their grip on first place in the league.

CLEMSON, S.C. - Maryland had its recent spate of close losses prolonged Sunday at Littlejohn Coliseum. With chances to win at the end of regulation, the Terps went into one overtime, then another, before losing to Clemson, 77-73, as their season-long agony continued. The defeat was the sixth in nine games this season decided by four points or fewer, and the third in a stretch of four games that followed two-point defeats to both Duke and Syracuse. Despite taking the lead with the first basket in each overtime, and leading 71-70 on a jumper by sophomore guard Seth Allen with 1:32 left in the second overtime, the Terps couldn't stop the Tigers down the stretch.

So, once again, it is only because of the vigilance of The Baltimore Sun that an issue like this overtime is raised ("Overtime budget buster," June 30). But, of course, now that The Sun has shined the light on it, everyone will react. Too bad that good management policies weren't already in place. In the Sheriff's Department, for example, we are told that there is a "new requirement that supervisors submit a weekly hourly total for commanders to review." This is a new requirement?

For a solution to the problem of excessive overtime pay costs in Baltimore City, we need only review a bit of history. The Fair Labor Standards Act passed in 1937 was a job-creation technique. It established the 40-hour work week with penalty pay, also known as overtime pay, for hours worked over 40, weekends, holidays, and so on. This was a time of heavy unemployment. The hope was that by limiting working hours, more people would be employed. The health benefits of a more reasonable work week were incidental, but considered.

Kickoffs get the boot Bill Kline The Morning Call In the catalog of things that are unfair - right up there with broken NBC promises and oil cartels and Wendy's scrapping its salad bar - is the outdated NFL overtime rule. The team that wins the coin flip and returns the kickoff often needs only two or three first downs to get into field goal range. Game over. Solution: Retain sudden death, but abandon the kickoff. The team that wins the coin flip can start on offense but must do so on its own 15-yard line.

Chris Fennell has made every start this season for Navy, but the freshman defenseman's 11th start is in question. Fennell injured his right leg in the second half of the team's 7-6 double-overtime loss to No. 1 and Patriot League foe Loyola on Saturday and was sidelined for the remainder of the game. Coach Rick Sowell said it's too early to determine whether Fennell - who ranks second on the Midshipmen (4-6 overall and 3-4 in the conference) in caused turnovers with 13 and has collected 17 ground balls - can play at No. 13 Army (7-3, 5-1)

Salisbury coach Jim Berkman is as candid as any coach in lacrosse. That honesty came through as he discussed the No. 2 Sea Gulls' surprising 8-7 overtime loss to Capital Athletic Conference foe Christopher Newport on Wednesday. “We didn't get it done on Wednesday,” Berkman said Friday morning. “We just weren't sharp. We weren't passing and catching well. We talked about a trap game all week, and we didn't play well. We threw numerous balls out of bounds playing catch with guys next to us on Wednesday that we hadn't done all season.

After wasting an 11-8 advantage in the final nine minutes of the fourth quarter, UMBC needed a critical stick save by redshirt freshman goalkeeper Connor Gordon to kill a six-on-four, man-down opportunity in overtime. The Retrievers then got a goal from sophomore midfielder Pat Young with 9.6 seconds left in the extra session to edge visiting Stony Brook, 12-11, at UMBC Stadium in Catonsville on Friday night. The win lifted the Retrievers to 5-4 overall and 1-0 in the America East Conference, which is pivotal if the program hopes to qualify for the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2009.

It was all too familiar Friday night: Arundel senior midfielder Aaron Snyder with the ball in his stick and the Wildcats playing their biggest rival, South River, in overtime. Snyder scooped up a ground ball in the middle and put a shot past Seahawks goalie Charlie Palandati with 3.6 seconds left in the four-minute extra period to give No. 11 Arundel another thrilling, 7-6 win over the No. 14 Seahawks. The last time the teams met, in last year's Anne Arundel County championship game, Snyder was the overtime hero and the final score was also 7-6. "It feels amazing," Snyder said with a big grin.
